At Browns we understand that ending a marriage is an extremely stressful and worrying time. Our family team are here to help guide you through the process and support you in making the important decisions throughout.
It is essential that, if you are considering divorce proceedings, you take legal advice from a family law solicitor early on. This is so you can understand the claims you and your spouse may have on divorce, before you come to an agreement. Even if all matters are agreed between you, taking early legal advice ensures that your agreement covers all issues that it should and that you are not agreeing to something which is not in your best interests. There may even be certain issues outside of the divorce you had not considered which our team will be able to advise you on, for example the importance of making a new Will after divorce.
Our Director, Jane Lodeto, who runs the family department is a member of Resolution and our family team fully support and work by the Resolution ethos which believes that a non-confrontational approach to family law issues produces better outcomes for separating families and their children.
Taking legal advice within a divorce is not an aggressive step, nor should you think it will make your divorce less amicable. It is important that you and your spouse are aware of the procedures and matrimonial laws so you can make informed decisions about your family.
We offer an initial free 30-minute consultation where a member of our family team will discuss with you all aspects of the divorce, children and financial matters as relevant to your particular circumstances. This can be done over the telephone, by a video meeting or in the office.
If you would like to discuss your divorce, please telephone 01268 565769 or 01277 636426 to book a free consultation with Jane Lodeto or Holly Johnson
